D.L. Hughley Addresses Beef With Mo’Nique Following Her Appearance On ‘Club Shay Shay’

The "Kings of Comedy" star said he will "never" forgive Mo'Nique for comments she made about his daughter.

D.L. Hughley is unleashing his thoughts on Mo'Nique following their longstanding beef.

During his latest sit-down interview on "The Jason Lee Show," which dropped on Wednesday (March 6), Hughley didn't mince words about "The Parkers" alum who resurfaced their conflict on "Club Shay Shay" last month.

In 2022, beef began to brew between the comedians after a contract dispute when Mo’Nique said she was hired to headline a comedy show in Detroit, but "The Kings of Comedy" star performed in that last spot instead.

After the show, Mo’Nique took her conflict with Hughley to Instagram in a rant while posting an interview he did with "Sway in the Morning.”

"I find it funny that DL will call out ICE CUBE, KANYE, RIZZA ISLAM, ANGELA STANTON, MYSELF ETC., but he won’t call out the name of the person that violated his daughter."

“My daughter is so angry with me, she hasn’t spoken to me in weeks,” Hughley told host Jason Lee. “What I don’t understand is why my daughter’s trauma would win an argument for you in a contract dispute,” explained Hughley. “I’m not the victim at all. I take the f - - - - - -g slings and arrows and all, not her. I ain’t talking about you and your people,” he continued.

5 Things That Mo’Nique Said On 'Club Shay Shay' That Left Us Shook

“We’re here now because you’ve taken me out of my character because you put me in a place when I’m angry about having to be out with somebody I love, so f - - -k everything else,” he added.

While Hughley continues to defend his daughter, he said, “I hate the position I’m in right now,” while adding “I got jokes so it doesn’t make me no nevermind about who goes ahead of me.”

“You break something I built over 30 years and you think it’s cute, f - – k you forever,” he said.

When asked about his relationship status with Mo’Nique, Hughley asserted it is over.

“I don’t ever need to be in her space,” he said. “The fact that my daughter looks at me a different way because of what happened, and I’m not saying I shouldn’t have said it, I’m not owning that, but that you took it out for so trivial a thing. It is like burning down a house because it had roaches. I’ll never f - - - - ing forgive you for that, but I don’t have to because I don’t have to be in your space. I will never say yes to you again in any circumstance, never.”

Last month, during Mo'Nique's appearance on “Club Shay Shay" she shared that her contention with Hughley originated after she was a guest on his radio show, "The D.L. Hughley Show,” while he was not there during the the taping.

“There’s a brother named D.L. Hughley and until he take accountability, I won’t let it go,” she said adding, “We don’t cross the line when it comes to family.” 

Before her segment wrapped on Hughley's show, she was asked to play a game of “Would You Rather,” where one option was for her husband Sidney Hicks “to sleep with Lee Daniels with a condom or Karrine Steffans without one.”

Mo’Nique, who felt offended by those options, proceeded to call Hughley to explain the situation. “Yea, well, that’s just how we do it,” Mo’Nique remembered Hughley saying.

After that, Mo’Nique’s legal team sent a cease and desist order that prevented the clip from airing.

“When Katt Williams talk and truth tellers talk, we have receipts to everything we’re saying,” she explained.
